There are many, many more Indian women in Math and CS. Do add their names!
Used this history.com/news/human-com… in my talk today on Women in Math and CS. ‘Human (women) Computers’ were important in early days of NASA. Is current predominantly male occupancy in CS related to the field being seen as a route to wealth/power? #InternationalWomensDay

Thread. Many thanks for the overwhelming messages. It is a great responsibility, working together we can overcome any barrier. We have our task cut out. Connect science to society and society to science.S&T can be the fulcrum for change: Agri, health, environment, development.
Speedy and sustainable development is possible when we scientists are organically connected with society and society sees value in scientific approaches. For this, scientists must come from every section of society.
Democratise access to science, so citizens from any background can access S&T opportunities, and lead. For this, one’s language should not be a hurdle, but an advantage. The best of science should be accessible in any of our languages
